Company experiencing change, but for the better

Inside Sales (Former Employee) Independence, OH

ProsManagement at the Cleveland Call Center has drastically improved
No cold calling, unless you uncover a prospect that you want to call
Co-workers are knowledgeable of the products
Casual work environment
Opportunity to earn high commissions
Work in tandem with outside sales team

ConsCompany wants 50 calls per day to accounts
Challenges with implementation of SAP system
Inventory management was an issue that was improving
Sales goals were often increased 20% from prior year, making it difficult to hit numbers
Only receive commission if you hit a certain percentage of your goal

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement in Cleveland was getting better. Very fair and professional call center manager. Advice to upper management would be to drive inside sales and outside sales partnering.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
